We are among several Marion Township residents who are not happy with muddy conditions on a short but busy gravel county road. Hisses to Jennings County officials for not doing something about it.

Judge not, says the Bible, which applies to Dreamers
Dear Editor,
Where in the Bible does it say that it is OK to judge people because of the clothes they wear or whether they have white, black, red or brown skin? Where does it say it is OK to put an idol before God

Messer's mailings nothing more than propaganda
Dear Editor,
This is an open letter to U.S. Rep. Luke Messer about the propaganda mailed to us periodically from the U.S. House of Representatives as "Public document, official business." At least it has the note, though in small type, "This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense."

No reason why current jail can't be expanded
About the new jail: Before they were complaining about the cost of transporting inmates from the current jail to the courthouse. Do the county commissioners realize that if they build a new jail farther away the cost will be even higher?

Cruel as any terrorist gang
Dear Editor,
Every time I see a semi-truck loaded with turkeys, blasting down the highway in the middle of a freezing night here in Dubois County, without a covering to protect the birds from the agony of the biting 60 mph wind chill, on their way to the slaughterhouse, many things are confirmed to me.

Taxing what hurts us
Dear Editor,
With the annual income tax filing date just around the corner, pundits are searching for ways to make our tax code fairer and more reflective of our social incentives and burdens. In this regard, there is a growing interest in a tax on meat, eggs and dairy products designed to curb the self-destructive health impacts of their consumption and to effectively compensate society for the associated devastating environmental impacts.
